On Deaf Ears 03:59
---------- Bleeding, fall down from the sky. helpless, the fear in her eyes Shaking, bruised, tattered and torn. Crying, what's left of this child has died. ---------- Hatred, such pain in her heart. Broken, so lost in her dark (Life stands still) Hopeless, star fading away, Lifeless, her mind makes the world stand still. ---------- another time i might have tried another time i might have cared another time i might have lied another time she might have lived. when its only thing we know when its the only thing we feel when its the only way we see Don't let our cries fall on deaf ears. Life stands still..... save us all.................... another time i might have tried another time i might have cared another time i might have lied another time she might have lived. when its only thing we know when its the only thing we feel when its the only way we see Don't let our cries fall on deaf ears. Don't make the same mistake.

And as we soldier forth we meet with cries of your disdain. The battle rages on our families cry tonight and as this bitter war ensnares the hearts of all. This venom coursing through our veins straight to our hearts. and as our reservations about each other fade. And as we rise above, your empire turns to dust. And as we soldier forth we meet with cries of your disdain. The battle rages on our families cry tonight. ----------------------- They will make you suffer ---------------------- Half the time i'm running on empty. other times I'm not quite myself. Still sometimes I can't shake this feeling, then sometimes I just feel alright. ----------------------- I'd try, but i don't know and i never really cared why is everybody looking at me? Turn on the light cuz I'm scared and i never really wanted this what the hell has happened to me? I'm lost in a two way mirror with the one-armed man watching me taking bets on when i collapse. Wrong way on a one-way street Why are you so scared of me? What the fuck has happened to me? Frustration, electric lies and i never really wanted this, i never really needed this take me to another place, away from death and suffering away from all the jealousy surrounding me and smothering. I tried, and I am scared what I never really wanted cuz i never really cared sad song, but i don't belong in the same damn room somone tell me what is going on.

Tomorrow 05:21
render me lifeless, my soul presses on scream til I'm silent, my heart still sings this song. ----------------- I can't wait for tomorrow, If you're not here today. My world's grown darker, colder since fate took you away. ----------------- My misplaced fears, your shattered heart. Fate lifts us up just to drag us down again. worn, tattered lives my misfit heart. fate lifts up just to drag us down again. ---------------------- We fight and, we whisper, we'll meet again. We stand up, we fall down we'll meet again. And we will fall, with our heads held high and we will rise with our heads held high. ----------------- My misplaced fears, your shattered heart. Fate lifts us up just to drag us down again. worn, tattered lives my misfit heart. fate lifts up just to drag us down again. ---------------------- We fight and, we whisper, we'll meet again. We stand up, we fall down we'll meet again. And we will fall, with our heads held high and we will rise with our heads held high. --------------------- We fight and, we whisper, we'll meet again. We stand up, we fall down we'll meet again. We fight and, we whisper, we'll meet again. We stand up, we fall down we'll meet again. And we will fall, with our heads held high and we will rise with our heads held high.
